The body discovered in the area where Equusearch dive teams were searching for 7-year-old Xavion Young on Monday has been identified as the missing child. Young’s family identified that it was him after a two day search.
Young left from his family’s townhome Sunday. His mother, Jarisa Young said she was upstairs when he walked out of their home. She had made a plea for her son’s safe return minutes before his body had been discovered.
“I just want him to come home. If you have him, just bring my baby home, because I’m dying inside,” she said.
The horrific discovery was made Monday night as a team of 150 had been searching the area where he was reported to be seen last. A vigil for Young will be held Tuesday near the pond. The family is asking that the community bring hangers because Young loved playing with them.
